The Most Real

“Man here below, lives so entirely among sensible things, and meditates so little upon spiritual objects, that he comes to look upon that which is spiritual as unreal, and upon material things as the only realities.  For most men, houses, and lands and gold are more real than God and the soul….Yet the invisible God is more real than any other being, for He is the cause and ground of all other existence.  It was an invisible Mind that made the material chaos from nothing, and brooded over it, and formed it into an orderly and beautiful cosmos.  The innvisible is far more substantial than the visible.”

-W.G.T.Shedd, From his “Sermons to the Spiritual Man”, P.177-178
